Distilleria Gualco, Silvano d'Orba

4.8
#5 of 9 in Breweries in Piedmont
Founded in 1870, Distilleria Gualco has been the property of the same family for generations. When you stop by this historic grappa factory, you'll be able to learn about the traditional production process, taste the product, and pick up a bottle or two at the onsite shop. Look for flavored grappas and grappa-based liqueurs, which offer a full-bodied sweet taste without being too sugary. Many of the distillery's recipes for making these products were developed by Bartolomeo Gualco, a legendary grappa master. You'll need to make prior arrangements for tasting sessions and guided tours, but you can drop into the shop any day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday.

    Historic distillery still remember when many years ago passing with my dad, we stopped to buy brandy and was invited to enter a "caramba next. Excellent product, and a pleasure to spend winter evenings.

    All products of great quality ... Extraordinary chocolates with brandy although a little pricey though ... Even the creams a pleasant surprise ...

    The distillery Gates is renowned in Italy and abroad for the very high quality of craft brandy that is produced here for decades. I always stay at the annual opening of the distillery as well as to purchase some great bottles of grappa disparate flavors that they cheer the finest palates.
